In this episode, Dorina sits down for a virtual cup of chai with author and speaker Simi John. They chat about experiencing God’s glory through culture, marriage, family life, and community.
Simi gives us a glimpse of her family life growing up in an Indian home and immigrating to the U.S. She talks about the tension she encountered in cultural values, but also what she treasures most about being Indian-American.
Simi tells her origin faith story and how she came to know Jesus as her personal Savior.
Simi shares what it’s like to be a pastor’s wife and ways she supports her husband, especially as he is leading through the pandemic.
Simi also relates what it is like to be a working mom and using her passion for people to minister through her physical therapy job and her mothering work.
Through this series, we hope you will discover and take notice of God’s glory alongside us. Every episode of Eat Pray Run includes a meaningful quote, an engaging conversation, and a little prayer.
Simi was born in India and moved to Dallas, TX at the age of 7. She graduated with her doctorate in physical therapy and got married to her best friend Jayson in 2010. Jayson pastors a local church in Norman, Ok and they have 2 kids.
Simi feels called to equip women to know who they are and live faithfully right where they are! Simi is a speaker and author of “I Am Not: Break Free From Stereotypes & Become The Woman God Made You To Be.”
